Gritman Medical Center's 'Light a Candle Foundation' hosted its annual "Bunko for a Cause" event Thursday night at the Latah County Fairgrounds. If you're not familiar with "Bunko," it's a game similar to Yahtzee. Players take turns rolling dice to get three of a kind.
"Well it seems that everyone in Latah County loves Bunko, so it's just an easy win for everybody," said Gritman Massage Therapist Teleea Lundgren. "It's a great time and a good way to raise a lot of money."
Teleea Lundgren is a massage therapist at Gritman who gives therapeutic massages to people battling cancer. That's just one of the many services the Light a Candle Foundation helps Latah County cancer patients pay for. This event attracted over 100 Bunko players, and they raised more than $7,000.
